Piezo Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty

Piezo ultrasonic rhinoplasty, also called piezoelectric rhinoplasty, is a surgical procedure that improves the appearance of the nose by using a device that produces ultrasonic waves to help reshape the nasal bones.

This device uses high-frequency ultrasonic waves to send directly to the nasal bone, allowing it to precisely remove certain bone fragments and dense cartilage without using traditional nose surgery tools such as chisels and scrapers.

Although tools such as rasps and chisels are effective in reshaping the nasal anatomy, they can create additional trauma to the surrounding tissues and in some cases cause swelling, bleeding and even additional scarring.

Advantages of Piezo Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty

Piezo ultrasonic technology can be used in both open rhinoplasty and closed rhinoplasty under general anesthesia. This type of rhinoplasty surgery provides an advantage because it allows for less adjacent injury to the deep soft tissues, adjacent mucosal tissue, and overlying skin, meaning less bleeding, minimal bruising, and less swelling.

Patients can expect less pain and shorter recovery time. In addition, since the cuts made by the ultrasonic rhinoplasty Piezo device are much more precise, reshaping the nose structure is more accurate. This is because the cuts are made under direct vision, resulting in bones that do not accidentally break or splinter as with chisels.

The Piezo System selectively remodels bones and hard cartilage while protecting skin, mucosa and soft cartilage.

  • Less Trauma to Surrounding Areas
  • Minimizing Post-Surgery Swelling, Pain and Bleeding
  • A Precise and More Predictable Cosmetic Result That Reduces the Risk of Revision
  • Complex Styling That’s Not Always Possible
  • Complements Preventive Rhinoplasty Techniques
  • A Delicate Aesthetic Result

Is Piezo Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty Suitable for You?

Piezo System is used for precise nasal bone shaping. Therefore, patients who need to have their nasal bones reduced or adjusted are the best candidates. Since these adjustments require stitching and graft techniques, they are not suitable for nasal tip or soft cartilage corrections. In the right surgical hands, ultrasonic rhinoplasty can:

  • Straightens a Crooked Nose
  • Reduces a Large or Wide Nose
  • Reduces Back Bumps and Bumps
  • Precisely Narrows the Bridge of the Nose
  • Restores the Balance of an Asymmetrical Nose
